first some tune ordered!

so finally made the jump for a custom tune and ordered the Looney tune by quicktricks auto

1. only real thing i wanted changed was my overdrive kicking in little later since the speedlimit before base has me always downshifting just the slowly pass.

anything else you guys found that works better with my truck and looney tune
2004 f350 4dr long bed 4x4 auto 4in lift, 35's

studs, delete, blue spring, coolant filter, cat elc coolant, coolant filter stock injectors with the stock but louder 03 turbo and 3.5in straight pipe exhaust, stock intake and trans almost 56k on truck.

really excited but kinda nervous too haha

Nothing to worry about really with the looney but be sure to tell them the tire size your running. Also look into the looney wild since you have studs

I run Looney and I am not studded. Don't expect to get the great fuel mileage as advertised. You WILL NOT be able to keep your foot off the skinny pedal. I absolutely love it. When I do manage to keep it out of the firewall it gets good mileage and shifts good.

Just be ready when the turbo lights. Its going to slam you back into your seat and snap the azz around if you really hammer it from around 20-30 mph.

Hope you've got extra money for another set of rear tires!

ah man you guys getting me all anxious!!! i had it on the canned hot tune with my sct and that was more then a blast lol!! Alot of my friends were really dumb-founded when they felt the hot canned tune and too be honest i've gotten alot easier on trucks over the yrs. i used to be rough on my yotas on the trails lol...

No comparison between canned tune and Looney. Night and day.

The canned tune will feel like stock compared to the looney, that was my favorite tune when I had stock sticks and turbo

I would load the tunes on a country back road... Somewhere where you can give the trans/turbo time to relearn. I would make 2 runs from 0-30 mph at 1/4 throttle. Then 2 runs from 0-45 at 1/2 throttle, 2 runs from 0-60 at 1/2 throttle, 2 runs from 0-60 at 3/4 throttle and finally 2 from 0-75 at WOT (if road and weather permits). Last 2 runs doesn't have to be at 75 mph but it can be more or a little less. I'd give Tonys extreme and Matt's SRLxx a try also... It's always fun to try different tunes and see how your truck reacts to them
